Having seen some of the reviews about the changing of perspective like in the 1st novel, I was ready for the style of writing. I never had an issue with not being able to tell the difference since the style of writing changed with the person's or dog's point of view.
I enjoyed the book as it expands my knowledge of the Golarion. Both main characters were fleshed out although the jumping back and forth between them took some getting used to but the author did a great job of distinguishing between the too with their style of speech that it ran together well.
If your not a gamer, you won't really care about this movie. Even as a gamer and DM, I could relate to the characters presented but didn't laugh my ass off at any one part. It was just an entertaining side trip that most game groups can relate to.
I just watched the dvd I purchased through Paizo and I mut say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The animation is great and actually makes the 20+ years since I watched the first series seem like it was yesterday. Nice continuation of the robotech series that Robotech fans would enjoy.
